“Watching our clients transform before my eyes is an amazing personal experience! Obviously, I don’t struggle with being overweight but being 4’10 and striving to stay above 84# poses a different kind of challenge for me. Since starting here, I’ve enjoyed the Ideal Protein foods and find they make a tremendous difference in my life. Now I’m eating high quality, easy to absorb protein and find that I don’t have to stuff myself with unhealthy, fatty foods in order to maintain a healthy weight. I can most definitely sympathize and appreciate what others are going through on either end of the weight spectrum. I’m a natural born cheerleader and I look forward to celebrating with you!”

When you contact our flagship office in Salmon Arm, Deb will most likely be the friendly voice or smiling face you’ll connect with. Being only 4’10” and 90 pounds we lovingly refer to her as “Hummingbird” or one of the “good things” that arrived in a “small package”. Her exuberant personality and zest for life is contagious.

Schedule an appointment online or give Deb a call and she’ll be happy to arrange an appointment for you.

“I enjoy motivating and educating my clients, ensuring safe, healthy weight loss and more importantly setting them up for long term success. My journey with Drop Zone has taught me that this is so much more than “just” a diet, it’s a pathway to overall health, wellness and happiness:) As we all know, losing weight is hard, and keeping it off is harder. With Drop Zone’s commitment to the Ideal Protein approach, a well thought out educational process and your 100% commitment, I’m confident that you’re only a few short months away from the body you’ve always wanted. Together we CAN do this!”

Jenn moved to the Shuswap in 2012 with her husband and 3 children who share her love of Taekwondo. She holds a black belt and regularly uses Ideal Protein to support her muscles and keep herself in check. Having been part of a family run, mixed martial arts studio Jenn compliments our team with a 12 year background in helping others achieve personal health & fitness goals. Now as Drop Zone’s senior coach, we would wholeheartedly support her in adding “First Class Weight Management Coach” to her list of accomplishments.

“Not only have I lost 75 pounds with Drop Zone I’ve successfully kept it off. I understand how it feels to be overweight, awkward & unhealthy. I’ve been there myself and I understand what others are going through. Being a coach, allows me to do what I love the most,….educate & encourage. My clients are like family and I want to teach them everything I know so they can achieve their own personal success. You won’t have to make the journey alone. I’ll be there, helping plan for every situation and challenge along the way.
I KNOW you can do it!!”


Sam has three major loves; her husband, her kids and her garden, so it’s no surprise that she’s a natural when it comes to nurturing and encouraging growth! She wears her heart on her sleeve and has a wealth of information to share with you.

Sam is a shining example of success. More than a year after losing 75 pounds with Ideal Protein she is still a champion. Learning to maintain her weight by implementing self discipline and applying the concepts she learned as a Drop Zone client has developed her into an amazing coach and mentor.

“Having raised four kids and now working full time, I understand how hectic life can get and how easy it is to put ourselves last. Being able to accomplish a long standing weight loss goal and desire to return to feeling healthy and energetic is so empowering! I have lost 80 pounds in 9 months through Drop Zone’s amazing program and I encourage you to join us and celebrate your own new found power and freedom from those pesky pounds!”


She blushes every time it’s mentioned, but we know for a fact that Janine has stepped into her new body and out of her comfort zone. She has become quite an inspiration to her family, friends and co-workers and her personal transformation has helped her regain her confidence in her own abilities.

Janine’s husband of almost 30 years and her four children are the joy of her life. She enjoys dabbling in photography, loves “anything” shiny and spends as much time as possible at the cabin with family and friends. Being real, celebrating success and helping others discover themselves & conquer new found challenges is what makes Janine tick.

When you contact our Vernon office, Deanna will be the warm, welcoming personality you’ll connect with. She has been a resident of Salmon Arm since 1996. Although she has travelled extensively, she still appreciates the scenic commute to Vernon each day. Deanna’s most precious times are spent with her grandson who is her pride and joy. She loves camping, scrapbooking and Crazy Creek hot pools. Although she’s only been on program for a short period of time she’s already noticing a greater clarity of mind and considerably less pain relating to her fibromyalgia.

“The Ideal Protein Weight loss Method is a gift that has changed my life. Not only have I seen the benefits this program has provided my clients, I have experienced it myself. I love the idea of ‘lifestyle change’ that not only makes a difference to the individual, but for their families as well. My family, having been affected by ALS, has made me not only a staunch supporter of the cause but also more aware of how precious good health is. It gives me purpose to help others achieve their goals and support them in their weight loss journey. Making a difference in someones life is my motivation as a coach here at Drop Zone.”


Michelle has lived in the North Okanagan Shuswap her entire life. She is a an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys camping & hiking. Being a mom and eager to portray a healthy lifestyle she is dedicated to eating well, fitness and weight training. With a desire to achieve her personal best Michelle worked hard to sculpt her body. Wanting to experience what her clients would encounter on our protocol she asked to participate in a 4 week program. Much to her surprise, she was AMAZED at how losing only 10 lbs and 3% of her body fat revealed her muscle tone, taking her from slim to toned.

“I love to educate, encourage and support my clients on their weight loss journeys. When they’re looking and feeling great, that’s my reward. Ideal Protein is more than just a weight loss plan, it’s a path toward becoming a healthier, more vibrant you! My client’s success is what makes me smile everyday!” 


Born and raised in Vernon, Sam is naturally drawn to hiking and outdoor sports. When she’s not spending time with her daughter or playing soccer her inquisitive nature is satisfied with her avid love of reading and learning. Having lost 16 lbs on program, Sam is pleased to get back to her pre-baby body.

Sam is enthusiastic and desires to inform and support her clients, focusing on the educational aspects of the program’s key components. While knowledge is power, Sam also has a huge heart and you’ll find her warm personality very engaging.

“Nothing makes me happier than witnessing the coaches I’ve mentored, now mentor and empower their own clients.  As pounds and self doubt melt away, a visible transformation takes place, not only in the size of their bodies but also the size of their smiles.”


With the addition of coach development & operations management my client calendar can no longer support taking on new clients. That being said, I am confident that you will find an extremely passionate coaching team ready, willing and able to support you. 

“An essential part of managing a business is ensuring it runs efficiently. Being an artist, QuickBooks was never on my bucket list. That being said this has been a challenging, yet exciting venture full of changes and growth. Without you and your referrals none of this would have been possible.”

Our goal is to meet or exceed your expectations and we want your experience with Drop Zone to be a positive one.
